In a surprising and unexpected development, Infinity Ward added Tamagotchi-style virtual pets to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Yes, really. In Modern Warfare, they're called Tomogunchi pets, and you can equip them to your watch to see their cute smiling faces while you murder enemies.
But how does it all work? GameSpot's Aaron Sampson breaks it all down in a video video. Check out the video above to find out how to buy one of the Tomogunchi pets and what you need to do to keep the little creature happy. In short, you're encouraged to keep playing … and playing well. If you keep losing, your pet can die, so stay frosty out there, soldiers.

The Tomogunchi pets arrive in Modern Warfare ahead of the rumored battle royale mode, Warzone, which is reportedly set to launch later this month.
